OSI Complete Work On 'Free' Video, Plan EP Release

OSI (OFFICE OF STRATEGIC INFLUENCE), the project featuring FATES WARNING guitarist Jim Matheos, ex-DREAM THEATER keyboardist Kevin Moore and DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy, recently completed a music video for the title track of their sophomore album, entitled "Free". The clip, which directed by Andreas Nilsson, is now being released to video outlets worldwide. The video will also be included as a multimedia file on the CD version of the band's upcoming EP, featuring three remixes of "Free" tracks. Burning Shed will release the vinyl version of the EP, while InsideOut Music will release a CD version. The track listing is as follows:

01. Go (Console remix)
02. Kicking (Theron Patterson remix)
03. Home Was Good (Kevin Moore remix)

The "Go" remix was created by Martin Gretschmann (a.k.a. Console), keyboardist and programmer of NOTWIST. Theron Patterson is a co-writer on CHROMA KEY's "Graveyard Mountain Home" and KEVIN MOORE's "Ghost Book" and "Memory Hole".

OSI's "Free" album features a guest appearance on five tracks by FATES WARNING/ARMORED SAINT bassist Joey Vera. A special-edition double CD of "Free" was released in Europe in April.
